Schrodt Art Studio Student Art Show
September 18, 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY (August 18, 2016) – Schrodt Art Studio will be hosting its Student Art Show on Sunday, September 18, from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. This exhibition features approximately 100 pieces from its students, on display this one day only for family, friends, and the public. Everyone is invited to attend this free event where Schrodt’s talented students will display their work from the past two years, some who have been painting at the studio for 20 years.
Schrodt Art Studio was started in 1975 by Mary Louise Schrodt, at the time, dean of the art department at Sacred Heart Academy. Mary Louise began her career at Central Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati, Ohio and later studied at Bellarmine College where she graduated with a B.A. in Fine Arts. Mary Louise’s husband, Paul Schrodt, gifted her with the studio where she began privately teaching a handful of students. The studio grew significantly over the years, with waiting lists of people wanting to study under Mary Louise. In 2001, Mary Louise passed away from cancer, with every student and family member feeling the grief of her passing. However, Mary Louise’s daughter, Judy Warren, stepped in to ensure her mother’s legacy would live on in the community her mother loved so dearly. For the past 15 years, Judy has continued teaching everything she learned from her mother. She often tells stories about Mary Louise’s teaching style that brings a smile to everyone’s faces, even those who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Mary Louise.
September 18th will be the 31st art show that Schrodt Art Studio has hosted to display the extraordinary art work of its students. The studio is inviting everyone to participate in this long-standing Louisville tradition celebrating art, its students, and the community.
The studio is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane Suite 13 near the Village 8 Theatres. For more information, contact Judy Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/schrodtartstudio.
